AbstractThorium blanket fuel is investigated in Pebble Bed Fluoride salt-cooled High temperature Reactor (PB-FHR) with 19.9 at% U-235 seed fuel to improve the utilization of uranium fuel. Uranium fuel utilization is optimized with lots of parameters, such as graphite-to-thorium atom ratio (C/Th), graphite-to-uranium atom ratio (C/U), discharge burnup of thorium and uranium, and the dimension of the seed/blanket region. It is found that the equivalent discharge burnup, defined as total released energy over the mass of uranium, could be improved to around 265 MWd/kgU, which is 20% higher than discharge burnup using pure uranium fuel. In equilibrium state, the temperature reactivity coefficients of fuel and coolant are both negative. Other properties such as radial power peak factor, life of reflector, in-pile residence time of thorium pebble and radioactive waste are analyzed. Finally, baseline design parameters are recommended for further thermal-hydraulic analysis and TRISO fuel performance. (C) 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
